the audience of graduates to follow their heart. i hit the campaign trail to elect a president that would make energy a national imperative. it touched me because it's the things we do at g s a everyday. just like apple products convey their products this building is no exception it has solar and open rabble windows and it represents the history in this city. we use an integrated design approach in our project and we manage our building holistically. and indeed we help the workforce because their housed. and where else is the conversion of technology and art more prevalent than here per jobs was an volley ball for workplace and i believed that successful companies thrived oneself competition rather than waiting for someone to come up with products their world leadership was for the last 15 years. g s a is leading the transformation for the frig. we were the first agency to help simplify the procurement of the board rage of services and saving million dollars discolors for the taxpayer. we're rolling out a program to help with the collaborative workspace and g s a as a great sustainable ability
appreciate how fast that election has moved forward. the testimony has spoken of the urgency. i'm looking forward to future conversations with members of the board and this committee because this legislation is treating it's triage and treating those immediately impacted. we also need to do much more to control and regulate the kinds of speculation that is fueling those evictions. and we as a coalition of affordable housing organizations and advocates have some other suggestions as to what we can do as a city to prevent those evictions from happening in the first place. i should say mrs. lee is on her way in the bus but she hadn't made it here. thank you >> thank you. next speaker, please. >> good afternoon, supervisors. from san francisco apartment association. i want to thank you supervisor chiu and the rest of his sponsors. i think this election is a good piece of legislation to create an migration to a difficult problem. i want to encourage this to allow private owners to step in and help anti amending that law so we can help out where there are no fault evocation to help getting pe

's resolution 11-12 to elect to retain the housing functions of the former redevelopment agency and to accept the housing assets, accept a transfer of all of the housing assets pursuant to disillusion law that was comprised of assembly bill ab 26. in march of 2012 the oversight board took action to acknowledge all of the housing assets had transferred to the city as housing successor. however, the end of june of 2012, the state amended disillusion law through assembly bill 1384. it did a lot of things, but one of the things it did was it changed how the assets should be treated, especially in transfers to housing successors and provided that transfers of housing assets exclude any balances that are retained in the low and moderate income housing fund and ex/khraoded the transfer of any obligations that were retained by the successor agency. it also required that housing successors provide a list to the state called the housing asset transfer list or the hat. that due date was august 1, so pretty much just one month later the city was required to turn in the hat and the city did that on augus
to elect people on the committee or stuff like that to lose sight of the actual people we're servicing. that about all the different possibility of what is a barrier for them to access employment and i would want to hope to add that into the conversation >> so you think it's not happening right now. >> i think it is i think you can always add more. >> so i'm looking to get a feeling for what exactly tangible you said a wider community voice that's an intangible thing it's also challenging but how about a specific piece of policy or legislation or a goal in the tech industry wild to see an there in latino workings by 50 percent in two years. what exactly are you looking to do i want to know concretely so when you come back for reappointment okay. how do we measure our success? >> i think that it's very hard for me to go with numbers i know that when i was in my coordinator he helper we were focused to make sure many the young people fulfilled concern requirements and it didn't reflect the type of work that was done so i don't think i can give a specific 15 percent of people in san
, what we're asking for is elected leaders and other civic leaders to endorse the boycott of center plate and food and beverage at the ballpark. >> i have a question. >> supervisor cohen? >> thank you. so, what i heard from a lot of the workers, boycott, to me, that means if i'm at the ballpark, don't buy food, it's as simple as that? >> it's that simple but there's a lofted of eventess, a big part of center plate's income comes from catering events, and so they have all kinds of events, you know, not just during the games but during the off season and when the games aren't being played, so we're asking people to boycott those catered events as well. >> this also includes candle stick? >> no, we're not boy contending -- boycotting the food at candle stick. >> center plate is also -- the contracts with candle stick, it would be contracted within the new stadium, so in my opinion, if we're looking at a larger issue about workers, we're talking about, yes, they may not be in the city and county of san francisco but maybe going down to santa clara county. >> they've been rewarded with that,

into the similar barriers even the elected officials. i agree to the issue in the food security in the tender loin and i phrase it around the access and the education and knowing what to do with the food once you get it and the ability to actually cook it and store it and prepare that food. but i would like to take it a step further and put on the conversation a little bit more and pose to the question of trying to answer how can you make it economically viable, if we are talking about the low income communitis that have the real high concentrations of poverty, such as the tender loin and 50 percent, and create the jobs around accessing the healthy food and give the folks the food and the opportunities to purchase the food and the sources and the example of that is the healthy corner store and that is going to expand to a meat market and going to supply the meat, and going to run that counter and i think that a lot of opportunity and we need to begin how to answer that and how can we answer that question. >> tell low, thanks for having me here today, my name is moxy and i am a physician in intern

providers commissions and elected officials: after this we go to the health commission the advisory counsel on ages and a variety of other places but we were asked to start here so here we are. we have a communications plan and we have messages and we will explain this under taking because this is just the plan. it's the implementation of this plan that's going to make the difference in san francisco so we're going to be doing clear consistent explanations to all of those groups. how will this all get implemented? well, the recommendation is for a long-term care implementation body to be formed that will include dos the human services agency the department of public health, the three health plans i mentioned and the long-term care coordinating counsel as an advisor but it's not set yet and i want to read something it says in our strategic plan -- the make up of the implementation body needs careful consideration and consist of those that can influence the implementations of the recommendations representatives -- well it doesn't matter but there's a variety of groups. some of your organ
and the timing for co-chair elections was really the catalyst to start these discussions, but i think that catalyst was really an excellent opportunity for the counsel to have a broader discussion about good government rules and the issues that were raised at those meetings really focus more upon communications between individual councilmembers but also communications between the councilmembers and the mayor's office on disability and they had questions about the good government rules that apply to discussions that take place outside of counsel meetings and i responded to those questions by scheduling a special training -- there's a briefing that's given by our city attorney at our last committee executive meeting held in october and i believe that training provided some very clear guidance about the rules that apply to passive bodies like the mayor's disability counsel and what we learned from that training is that the counsel actually has a lot of flexibility much more so than some of the other counsels and boards and commissions that we all work with here in the city and i hope t
